Apple OS X Mountain Lion release date Wednesday July 25

During the company's Q3 2012 earnings call, Apple announced that tomorrow will be the day that OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion will be formally released into the wild. This software update is made for all computers in the newest generation and will bring on a selection of features outline in our early first look at the system several weeks ago. This system will be just $19.99 USD – this undercutting the price of competitors on several levels.

The $20 software upgrade will have you moving to Apple OS X 10.8 and will be free if you've purchased an Apple computer in the last couple of weeks. You'll need a bit of extra disk space to download this upgrade, but those of you that keep your system relatively clean should have no trouble whatsoever – fair warning though, the last upgrade was a doosie of a download.
